Today is my birthday.
I am 33 years old. (I know, I don't look a day over 32...)
I am pregnant with my fourth child.
I am married to the most perfect man. Perfect for me at least, which is how it should be.
I have three amazing children who remind me everyday why I've always wanted to be a mother.
I have a beautiful home that I am grateful to live in.
I have parents who love and adore me and go out of their way to make sure I'm taken care of.
I have a brother who makes me laugh and has become an amazing confidant over the years.
I have in-laws who have taken all my egocentric tastes and eccentricities and welcomed me as one of their own.
I have friends who spoil me rotten and treat me like gold. I am eternally grateful for each of their influences in my life. Go here or here to see what I mean.
I spent the weekend taking care of myself for a change and it felt really nice.
I know my children love me.
I know my husband loves me.
Heavenly Father loves me.
I love that I have an education and can rely on it at any time I need.
I have the eyes of my grandparents and it makes me smile.
I can usually make people laugh which always comes in handy.
I am passionate about the things I believe in and will fight for them.
I make yummy food. (Hence, the waistline...)
I'm not afraid to be bold with color in my house (pictures of my bedroom coming later this week!)
I love to laugh and probably do so more than the average bear.
I have survived the thing I always dreaded the most as a child, my parents divorcing, and have come out stronger and closer to both of them.
I have maintained lifelong friendships and know that I will always have wonderful people in my life.
I am my husband's biggest fan.
I am my children's greatest support.
I am loud, crazy, wild and outspoken and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I have a great amount of empathy and always feel the hurt of others.
I have my mother's hands.
I have a love of chocolate like no other.
I keep an orderly house.
I love people and a house full of lots of them.
I feel the love of my birthday well wishers, both near and far, and find tears in my eyes at the goodness of those around me.
Thanks everyone! And Happy Birthday to me!
